We're in that phase post tonsillectomy in which the sun is shining, the ice cream's good, the pain is non-existent, and Dubya's building Lego sets. By all accounts, however, the sun will set in a couple of days, bringing darkness and pain and scabs that fall off bit by bit, radiating their painful essence to the ears and making people throw up. As a realistically optimistic pessimist, I cannot help but peer into the near future while still enjoying the moment.
In other news, the surgical wounds from tonsil removal are gross. And I say that as someone who, well... let's just say that even the word "maggots" does not gross me out much.
And in completely unrelated news, Mr. DMFP IM'd me this YouTube link the other day with the message, "The boys would like this." I played it for "the boys," and we watched several minutes of it as I exclaimed something to the effect of "WTF was your father thinking? This is totally inappropriate," except in more child-appropriate language. Turns out, he was right. The boys did like it. If you haven't seen it already--and 40 million-plus people have--you should watch it. The people commenting behind the camera are entertaining, especially the American, who makes several dazzling comments that demonstrate a definite flair for the obvious.
